“Better Than Fried” Chicken

This chicken is so nice and crispy. Better than fried because it’s healthier and not oily. Mix your spices ahead of time. Add the sugar and almond meal when you are in the mood for chicken. This coating also makes great chicken strips or nuggets. Freeze leftover chicken for a quick meal with vegetables and rice, or in a salad.

Notes:

  • Coconut sugar (or coconut crystals) is produced from the sap of the flower buds of the coconut tree. It is low glycemic and is a great substitute for refined white or brown sugar. It has a caramel-like taste and is full of nutrients.
  • Sucanat is an unrefined cane sugar.  It is basically pure dried sugar cane juice.  Vitamins,  and minerals are still intact when it is ready for packaging.
